Mission Statement

Our Mission is to efficiently address the unmet material needs of homeless and other impoverished children, and adults working towards self-sufficiency.

Description

More than 250,000 public school children are identified as homeless under the U.S. McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act and 3.5 million are enrolled in the Free or Reduced Price Meal program. These children and youth struggle to afford the basic yet critical materials necessary for a quality education and life. This hardship not only stymies students’ confidence and academic achievement, but also burdens teachers and school districts. K to College's School Supply Initiative addresses this material resource gap by providing under-resourced students with $65-70 grade-appropriate school supply kits for no more than $22. Another barrier to educational success is poor oral health. This problem disproportionately affects children from lower-income families, and is the number one chronic illness in children. In response, K to College created the Dental Kit Initiative, which provides the basic oral healthcare necessities: a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss to low-income and homeless students in California.

Wonderful experience for myself and my kids. Would definitely do this again! Very organized and there was something for everyone to do...from the oldest to the very youngest.

This was a wonderful experience for myself and my children. The event was well-run, and everyone was so positive and energetic. I give accolades to Target, Kaiser, Permanente, Huawei, Give Something Back Office Supplies, and UA 230 for donating SO MANY school supplies!
